As a Global Partner team for PUBG, the 10 organisations receive a percentage of the sale of in-game items in addition to a guaranteed slot to compete in the PUBG Global Series, the highest tier of PUBG esports.

In addition to the team skins, PUBG will also release skins themed around the PUBG Nations and 2024 PUBG Global Championship.
